Ready for his big moment, Donald Trump swept into Washington on a military jet Thursday for three days of inaugural festivities and pledged to unify a nation that is divided and clamoring for change. Washington braced for an onslaught of crowds and demonstrators — with all the attendant hoopla and hand-wringing.
"It's a movement like we've never seen anywhere in the world," Trump declared at a celebratory Lincoln Memorial concert on the eve of his inauguration. To his unwavering supporters who were him from the start, he promised: "You're not forgotten any more. You're not forgotten any more."
Trump's public schedule for the inaugural celebration began at Arlington, where he and Pence stood at attention as a bugler played taps at the Tomb of the Unknowns. Trump's wife, children and grandchildren silently looked on.
From there, Trump shuttled to a celebratory welcome concert on the steps of Lincoln Memorial that ended with filling the evening sky.
The concert, open to the public, offered headliners including country star Toby Keith, soul's Sam Moore and rockers 3 Doors Down.
